Pro-Ject Xtension 10 with Ortofon Cadenza Black

This turntable does not normally come with a cartridge but with this special offer you get Ortofons flagship Cadenza Black Cartridge for just £1,000. Saving you £750 off the RRP of buying both together. 


The Xtension 10 is an ideal solution for anyone who is looking for the exceptional sound quality of the standard Xtension in a more compact size and at a more appealing price.

The Xtension 10 incorporates all of Pro-Ject's 20 years experience in turntable design.


The chassis is made from MDF filled with metal sand, which gives a high mass and is non-resonant. But in addition the turntable also uses magnetic feet, which decouple the main plinth from its base. The result of this combination is a merging of the influential 'mass loaded' and 'floating turntable' design principles.  


Instead of the old-standard adoption of pure metal for a main platter, Pro-Ject researched and uncovered a perfect alloy material, which has then be damped on the inner side with Sorbothane®. Taking this base structure, they've then glued recycled Vinyl records to the top (which act as a perfect mat) and baked this 'sandwich' before precision balancing it. The Xtension 10 subsequently benefits from a wonderfully resonance-free, heavy platter, that runs ultra-silently on an inverted ceramic ball-bearing, with magnetic suspension. 


The base of the included Pro-Ject 10cc Evolution Tonearm also benefits from 'high-mass' technologies, and is isolated from the main board by a sheet of Sorbothane. To use this tonearm with a wide range of top quality phono cartridges, from 4 to 14g, it comes with a set of 4 different Sorbothane- damped counterweights. 

Finally, the Xtension 10 is also supplied with a beautiful dustcover with adjustable hinges.

Ortofon Cadenza Black Moving Coil Cartridge 


The Cadenza Black is the flagship of the popular Cadenza range of Moving Coil cartridges. It employs a pristine-cut Nude Shibata stylus with a boron cantilever. The effective mass of the stylus/cantilever system is extremely low due to the use of a very thin boron rod; this material is extremely stiff and even more lightweight than aluminium, making it a real premium component choice. 

The Black model  also uses the WRD (Wide Range Damping-system), controlling the high and low frequency damping separately. The coil wire is the famous Ortofon Aucurum wire, which is a gold plated version of the popular 6NX copper wire. 

Cadenza Black is optimized for an amazing tonal neutrality, dynamics and purity of sound. It is high performing on areas like detail, consistency and sound staging.
